Not only that, but I'd say that Keith was an important part of the band's boogie-woogie first set sound from that same period. No other GD keyboard player sounded better on the barroom songs. Brent, by contrast, produced a sound fundamentally at odds with the spirit of those songs.

I like Brent and appreciate the contributions he made, but no way he was better or more central to the sound that Keith was during the golden years. Find me one sloppy performance by Keith from 1971-1974. Just one.
